Howdy! Ronee' here! I am sorry you haven't heard from me; I have been very busy. Between school, homework assignments, church functions/practicing for our upcoming Easter Cantata, and practicing my music/singing, I just haven't had the time to do hardly nothin'!! I hope you understand.
Healthwise, I'm doing great. Oh, I tried to flare about a week or so ago, but I didn't, thank goodness. I prayed to God to keep me from getting sick. He did. I only had pain for about two days; then I was a-okay! :)
Unfortunately, my brother, Johnathon, hasn't had an easy time of it lately. He was in the hospital just about a month ago; he had congestive heart failure; it's left him very weak. Oh, he's over the heart failure now, but it's going to take him a while to get over it. It was only by a miracle that he's doing better; I credit the Lord for bringing him through it.
We have been lifting him up in prayer; I think this is why he's doing so good right now. :) Jesus is healing him, as only He can. Hopefully he'll be good as new by the time the Cantata rolls around! :)
Oh, guess what! I saw the Gaither Vocal Band over this past weekend at our church; they did a great job! I really love them, especially Gary Penrod, the guy with the long, grey hair; he's rather easy on the eyes! :) And so very nice; when I tried to talk to him, all I could do was sputter like an idiot! I was sooo nervous upon meeting him!
I'm taking a ten week course at church, "Cleansing Stream". We will have four classes, then a retreat (two days), then one more class afterwards. I went last fall, and it was really an eye-opening experience! I got delivered of a lot of junk; I've been feeling better now than have been for a long time! I'm a lot happier now; I feel the Lord is only going to use me in ways that I could not even believe!
Our first class was tonight. It was interesting. I will be learning how to walk fully in the spirit and know how to battle the enemy (Satan) when he tries to derail me from reaching my full potential as a Christian. We will also have some Bible reading and some homework to do in the workbooks they provided.
After the fourth class we will have our retreat; then one more afterwards, which will be more of a celebration/praise report. Then it will be all over.
Some people in the class have gone through it more than once; this is my second time. The homework won't be so much of a problem for me as those who've never done it. And the retreat will be something to look forward to; I now know what to expect out of it. And who knows what God will do then?? Time will only tell! :)
Well, I am going to go to bed; I want to read the Bible and pray before I close my eyes. I want to end my day on a good note. I have school tomorrow, besides; have school until Thursday. I'm then off Friday and the Monday after Easter.
I will write in here again soon; until then, this is Ronee' saying so long for now! May God bless you as much as He's been blessing me lately; He's been blessing my socks off! I pray it continues! :)
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tennessee, Ronee' Le-Anne Reaux. :D
